What our clients say!
We had a wonderful week holidaying on board one of Boating Turkeys gulets in September 2016. We left from Marmaris, visited Rhodes, Bozborum, a number of Turkish bays, Datca, Symi, Nisyros, Kos and disembarked at Bodrum. We found Necmi Artar very straightforward and helpful to deal with during the planning and arrival phase and it was great to be able to be so flexible in choosing our itinerary. The crew were very friendly and keen to help and Volkan was a wonderful cook and spearfisherman! We would definitely be very happy to use Boating Turkey again and Turkey remains one of our favourite places in the world. If only it was closer to New Zealand!
Dear Necmi, Rusen and Boating Turkey
We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.
We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever.
The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and
The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly,
always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best
spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some
wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with
baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as
we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open
fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He
was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name

I just wanted to say a huge big thank you to you and Boating Turkey for the fantastic service we receive from the first email to the time we disembarked from your boat.
Our trip on your gullet was an experience none of us will ever forget and the 'little extras' you provided so effortlessly are much appreciated.
The staff on board the gullet the fantastic - attentive, caring and always just waiting to answer our every need.
A special thanks to Memet Snr who provided fantastic and healthy meals out of the tiny and very hot kitchen, Memet Jnr for the all the cleaning and endless round of drinks of and of course our very capable captain - JJ - who took us through some tricky situations to say the least. The crew were pleasant and caring and just knew how to be there but not be intrusive.
I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone who intends hiring a gullet for a holiday and would happily give a testimonial to anyone who asks.
Many thanks for making my sons' 21st birthday holiday so special - as you know we thoroughly enjoyed the belly dancer you arranged at such short notice.
Kind regards and once again a huge big thanks
